TT is typical perhaps that at this hour of Graduation the prime emotion in our youthful 
hearts is an overwhelming sense of fulfillment. On the threshold of maturity, we 
regard our education as but the first step in a long and glittering path of success. For one 
brief moment of sustained sentiment, we pause and reflect upon the brilliant panorama 
of memories which is all that remains of our high school days. 

Because we are young and eager to begin our life, we forget sometimes that this final 
moment of glory is not ours alone to covet. We are but mere reflections of a far greater 
accomplishment. For was it not our parents who gave us the implements with which to 
work, the strength to persevere, and the praise which prompted us to perfection? The 
magnitude of their gift to us can never be measured for it was meted out lavishly and 
without reservation. It is a completely selfless love which they have given to us — a love 
which has molded our character, strengthened our ideals, and embodied our happiness. 

It is sad that we forget so soon the motivating force of all our joys. It is therefore 
meet that this chronical of our days at Stetson High School should be dedicated to our 
parents. An inadequate gesture to be sure but oh, so sincere! It is then, dear parents, in 
humble appreciation for your love and inspiration that we dedicate this book.

. In all probability you knoiv this man. His benign and good-humoured count- 
enance is a familiar sight dbout the town. The question is, dear parents, "Do you really 
know him?" Are you aware of those thousand and one things which he has done for 
us. not in the name of a superintendent but in the name of a friend? In our humble 
tribute to him we have endeavored to tell him of our gratitude. Inadequate as it is 
we feel sure that it contains your sentiments also, for he has served us both so well. 



Wr. CL 



\ti 



ridticinSen 




'T^HE aim of all great men is service — the desire to better the condition of society. 
-*• The most beneficial way to do this is by educating all of the children of all of the 
people. 

The role of Superintendent of Schools is not the role of a common man. He should 
have great power of thought and, what is more important, he should be able to under- 
stand the needs of children. 

Randolph has been fortunate in having a man like Mr. Christiansen. We are more 
indebted to him than the average person would realize. Through his outstanding effort, 
his patience, his persistance, our schools are the equal of any city school — and, in many 
instances, in advance of them. 

To be called "efficient" gratifies the ego — to be called a "friend" warms the heart — 
and to hundreds of children, this man is a friend. We'll forget — since it is the fashion 
of the times — of his educational farsightedness. But who is there among us but will 
remember the pencils with our very own names stamped upon them, the baseballs and 
jump ropes, the candy bars, the trips to the museums, and above all, his constant and 
sincere championing of the under-dog. We won't forget the kind, silver haired gentleman 
in the little gray Ford, who was always a welcoming sight to us. 

Children seldom remember to say "Thank You." But, we are no longer children 
and so now, Mr. Christiansen, we are saying "Thank You." for every happy memory. 

Mary Lou Barry '5 1 



Note: After we ivent to press, Mr. Christiansen, because of ill health, resigned after 
thirty years of faithful service as Superintendent of Schools. He is succeeded by Mr. 
Reade. former principal of the Prescott School. 



Dear Parents, we should like to introduce you to Mr. Hubert Gilgan. our principal, 
our "boss", our friend. As parents you have very much in common ivith this man. for 
he too shares an interest in our welfare. Together you have worked to improve our minds 
and personalities — together you have shared our disappointments and rejoiced in our 
happiness, so noiv it is fitting that together you should take a bow. 




W. Qii

HE will stand there surveying us, in an attempt to be serious and critical — but failing 
miserably. We'll all see the kind twinkle in his eye and the smile that he is vainly 
trying to suppress. How often we have seen him like that — the amused, kind and won- 
drous expression on his face. We shall hesitate for a moment in a breathless silence, 
admiration quickening our hearts, catching in our throats and then welling into tears. 
It is then that we shall realize what we owe him and appreciate what he has done, but 
none will be able to put this debt of gratitude into words. No one will walk up to 
him, shake his hand and say "Thanks for the hours you gave me, the sympathy or en- 
couragement" — but everyone will think of some individual encounter with this friend. 

The only thanks he shall receive will be the tears that fall during the graduation 
exercises and the fond memories we carry of him down our divergent paths of glory. 
But Mr. Gilgan, the tears that fall shall not be mere sentiments of the surface, for they 
will spring from the hearts of each one of us — and whether fitting or not, they will 
be our greatest tribute to you.

— And here are our mentors, God Bless 'em! We thank the?n for their intelligence, 
their sense of humor but most of all for their patience. For after four years of edu- 
cating the "not too bright class of '51," they have retained their sanity. Now it is up 
to us to prove, that they have not taught in vain. 



FACULTY 



MR. CRIMMINS 

This gentleman, ( decorum at its best ) , 
Is famous for his peppered wit and smile. 
He brings the most obscure theories to 

light 
And serves our science in amusing style. 

MISS FOLEY 
Fun to be with 
We feel she's a friend 
Who_e smile we will miss 
When our way will wend. 

MR. POWDERLY 

An incessant volley of jokes ( and maps ) 
Makes history class a treat. 
He'll scream when he reads this adjective 
But we think Mr. Powderley's "sweet". 

MISS SCHOMER 

There's nothing like a sirloin steak 

To really warm the heart, 

We have a lovely recipe. 

Come down and taste Miss Schomer's art 

MISS O'NEIL 

A lovely language, surely to be taught 
By some one, lovely, capable, genteel. 
Which is precisely why we're fortunate 
To have our gracious mademoiselle O'neil 

MR. DALY 

He's putting cupid out of business. 

Dividing students, pair by pair; 

If you don't want your heart exposed in 

class. 
Then, Romeo, - Juliet, take care. 

MISS McCANN 

She introduces all the lore 

of Virgil, Horace, Caesar, 
Because she teaches kindly 
We all do our best to please her 

MISS BRENNAN 

An inner peace, a tranquil charm 
And friendliness upon her face. 
We're fond of all the qualities 
That give Miss Brennan grace. 

MISS LAPPEN 

Always believing in us, 
Cheering us all the way. 
She's famous for her friendliness. 
Her firmness and fair play. 

MISS THOMPSON 

This litle lady, very sweet 

is always wreathed in smiles, 
She's magic with a needle 

and she knows the latest styles 



MISS BREWSTER 

Appreciation of courtesy and calm 
Because these qualities are hers also. 
We like her cuz she's pleasant and because 
She really likes us quite a lot, we know. 

MISS LORDAN 

Gentle nature, gentle manners too, 
Qualities that we are sure to praise. 
We like the calm, deliberate attitude, 
Tempered by her quiet, winning ways. 

MISS KELLEY 

Her deep sincerety, her wit, 
Gratitude within us stir; 
She taught with faith in us 
And we have utmost faith in her. 

MISS CONNORS 

Miss Connors must be stern and firm 
Within her class it's true. 
But she has a patient nature 
And a sense of humor too. 

MISS GALVIN 

Magnetic dignity — and hers a mind 

that we can see resplendent in its light. 
Whose rays have touched on us within 

her realm, 
Making our classes with her rich and 

bright. 

MR. ZAPUSTAS 

Here is the perfect pal 
Who never lets us down. 
We're proud that S.H.S.'s coach 
is the best liked man in town. 

MRS. ATWOOD 

Her lustre is not limited in art. 
Her character displays a radiance too. 
Of quality and wisdom and light 
Of understanding shining through. 

MR LEHTINEN 

In awe-inspiring things like higher math. 
His agile mind proves he's quite a wit. 
Alas! we fear we'll lose this teacher 'cuz 
In driving class, his life's no longer his. 

MR. THOMAS 

"Impressive" is the word 
That best describes his quiet air. 
We know the courtly manner 
And the talent burning there. 



Well here ive are in person, Mom and Dad. Perhaps you will hardly recognize us 
in our nexvly acquired dignity. Take a peek at the verses which lie beneath our pictures 
and don't forget to look at the various activities in which we participated. Glance carefully 
at the thoughtful glint m our eyes, and you shall come to one conclusion — we're all 
ejown up/

BEQUEATHED BY: The decadent class of "51", last inhabitants of Stetson High School. 

We, the graduating class of the local secondary school in the town of Randolph, 
Massachusetts, United States of North America, Earth, Western Hemisphere, Solar Sys- 
tem, being of sound, even garrulous mind, do make and declare (a feat since we can 
neither read nor write) this to be our Last Will and Testament, and will go through the 
red tape of mentioning that we revoke all other Wills and Testaments heretofore made, 
( knowing very well we never wrote any others. ) 

To all scholars of the "new place" we bequeath in case the school is long in being 
complete, pails, shovels and plenty of mud. 

To Mr. Gilgan — Bayer Aspirin in loving regret of the headaches we've caused. 

To Mr. Thomas — A choice of earplugs or a talented kitchen orchestra. 

To Mrs. Atwood — An armed truck, a tank and twenty-two to guard her art cabinet. 

To consumers of the lunchroom delicacies — Mountains of mashed potato plus lumpy, 
bumpy, coldy, moldy, applesauce. 

To French classes — Lily Pons complete with tonsils, and an acute loathing for the 
subjunctive mood. 

To U. S. History classes — Map paper, laughs and antihistemine pills. 

To Latin classes — Caesar — and an allegy to ablatives. 

To the lab — All the mangy canines who play peek-a-boo with Mr. Crimmins through 
the window. 

To budding artists — sable smocks and storm resistant berets to brave the frost in 28. 

To English IV classes — Outlines of English Literature purchased from us at the 
nominal rate of $8000 and one head — removed from body. 

To the Hockey Team — wooden legs. 

To the Football Team — Lessons on "How to Make a Forward Pass." 

To the Boys' Basketball Team — Year's supply of Gro-Pup. 

To the Smokers' Club — Ashes. 

To the Juniors — Miss Galvin and our class Treasury, such as it is. 

To the Sophomores — A sweet sap named Phoebe plus a most attractive Virginian. 

To the Freshmen — Four Years to a better vocabulary, and a leather bound copy 
of Charles Atlas' Success Course. 

To Mr. Mahann and Mr. Holmes — a few literary gems, "Charms of Chintz" and 
"Ins and Outs of Interior Decorating." Also a jar of Jergens for "the hands you love to 
touch." 

GIVEN: The eighth day of June in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Fifty- 
one. 

WITNESSES: General MacArthur 
George 
Patte Copeland

\ 




it is only natural, Mom and Dad, that you should think that our particular class is 
without a doubt, the cleverest which has ever marked on Stetson's walls. Confidentially . 
we think so too, and are therefore eager to embark upon promising futures. Armed with 
such self confidence, we are ready to make our mark upon the world. We think that it 
will.be a successful one. don't you? 



AM 




The following is a detailed report involving 
my position as a government census taker of 
the town of Randolph, Massachusetts in the 
year of our Lord I960. My investigation has 
proved that these good people of Randolph are 
enjoying a life of contentment that is rarely 
found. A hard working group, it was rather 
difficult to seek them out and discover the 
source of their happiness. I found that it was 
hard work. Inspired by their industry, I set out 
early one morning to interview them. Ap- 
proaching a large brick establishment across 
from the old high-school, I inquired of its 
owner. Jane Walsh and Tom P. Worth seemed 
to be co-partners in a successful pickling works. 
Frank Hansa, a promising financial wizard, 
managed the plant for them. 

Leaving this building I advanced with vigor 
to the corner of North Main and Short Street 
only to find an ultra-modern barber shop doing 
a land-slide business. Donald Magnussen and 
Clifford McCormick were busily engrossed in 
shearing off the curly locks of a prominent 
politician by the name of Roy Mann. On closet- 
scrutiny I recognized the pert young manicurist 
4it his side to be Kay Chisholm. While I was 
jotting down this information, the blaring 
sound of a radio drifted out of the open door. 
A blast of trumpets presented a new day-time 
serial called "John and Marsha". The stars of 
the program turned out to be the former 
Shakesperian actor, Kent Smith and his new 
leading lady, Barbara Foote. A hoard of baby 
carriages disturbed my reverie. The pretty 



young matrons who were pushing the dear 
little ones, turned out to be acquaintances of 
mine also. Barbara Bassett, Mai Reed and 
Doty Skaieki told me of their marital bliss in 
glowing terms. At a sudden screech of brakes, 
the youthful mothers grasped their children to 
them and I looked up with alarm to see a fa- 
miliar brunette grin at me from the seat of a 
brand new Buick. "Why it's Dor-Do-Doris 
Croicley." I shivered still very much frightened. 
A dare-devil of the highways, Miss Crowley 
had been a great success as a test driver for 
General Motors. I noticed three of her me- 
chanics huddled in the back seat complete with 
crash helmets. They introduced themselves as 
being Ed Stewart. Joe McDonnell, and Len 
Cunningham who incidently achieved more 
notoriety for his famous last words, "Floor it. 
Tom". 

Crossing the street I noticed, quite by 
accident, that the Randolph Theater was pre- 
senting its yearly array of local talent Harvey 
Cossaboom headed the bill and I ensconced 
myself in a third row seat and watched with 
horror as he cold-bloodedly prepared to saw his 
assistant, Margie "Fearless" Vaughn in half 
The master of ceremonies, Mr. R. Emil Chip- 
man, then presented the finale which included 
Miss Roberta Norman, singing her favorite 
arias from North Atlantic, and the impressario 
William Hatch, musical comedy star. Miss 
Chiquita Field, manager of the theater, to- 
gether with its owner, Richard DiCarlo. pre- 
sented the troupe with awards. 



It was fortunate for me that an attractive 
lunchroom was conveniently located beside 
the theater. A happy tinkling of bells greeted 
my ears as I entered. Three waitresses immedi- 
ately rushed to attend my needs. These pleasant 
females, I discovered were Ruth Schmidt, Mary 
McDonald, and Grace Cullen. It was not long 
before the pungent odor of pizza assailed my 
eager nose and I could not resist the temptation 
to discover the identity of this magnificent cook. 
Out in the kitchen, enveloped in an enormous 
apron, Agnes Hobsdn peeked over a huge 
mound of dough and laughed infectiously at 
me. After obtaining a few of Agnes' culinary 
hints, I expressed my desire of meeting the 
manager of this interesting establishment. No 
sooner .had I uttered this request than Ann 
Lynch, the proprietress, dashed out to meet 
me. She related with pride four members of 
her staff. Charley Warner, and John Ro bison 
managed the restaurant for her in the evening 
( for Ann was presently engaged in taking 
night courses at Burdett. ) She also employed 
Barbara Sproules and Evelyn McLeod as host- 
esses. In a far booth, I accidently heard a 
heated argument. It seemed that Miss Patricia, 
McEntee, president of the M.T.A., was threat- 
ening to sue Parker Richards for damages. My 
curiosity aroused I listened further and found 
to my surprise that Mr. Richards, a local "Hot 
Rod" enthusiast, had on a previous occasion 
been involved in a serious accident with an 
M.TA. bus driven by Robert Dupras, a very 
careful driver. The two complainants had 
their lawyers with them, Mr. George Duran 
Mull and Mr. John J. O'Malley. The argu- 
ments seemed to be getting fiercer so I silently 
slipped out before the hostilities began. 

In Mansfield's Paper Store, I bought a news- 
paper and was greatly surprised to see that 
Claire Mahoney was the crusading woman 
editor. She had an excellent staff of reporters 
at her command including Robert Needham, 
the eminent authority on political science and 
Patte Copeland the fashion expert. The local 
reporters were Roberta Hennessey and Catherine 
MacLellan. I found interesting articles on be- 
half of the candidacy of Helen Jaques for Pres- 
ident. This much beloved stateswoman was 
fighting a bitter battle against her opponent the 
influential Secretary of the 'Navy Gael O'Rior- 
den. The Jaques ticket included Pauline Tard- 
anico for Vice-President. Jane Young was the 
publicity agent for their campaign. On glanc- 
ing further through Miss Mahoney 's paper I 
noticed that her most competent photographer, 
Robert Issac had been awarded a large sum of 
money for his realistic action shot of Cynthia 
Fletcher doing a "Jacknife Dive" at the Mont- 
ello Pool. Mr. Issac had also won acclaim for 
his pictures of Richard Connaughton and 



Arlene Murphy at their roller-skating debut at 
the Boston Garden last month. 

The rousing sounds of the Home-town Band 
were invigorating as I saw a large assemblage 
in front of Town Hall. Charles Connors, who 
was currently appearing at the Totem Pole, and 
had returned to Randolph to raise money for 
a benefit. 

Margurite Holcombe, the well-known mis- 
sionary was in the process of being equipped 
with funds to return to her mission school in 
China. The Pats, Boyd and Norton, wealthy- 
philanthropists donated several hundred dollars 
while Edith Glover, Robert Vaughn and Leah 
Leotti, leaders of local organizations also 
donated large sums. The rally was sponsoring 
a large auction and Roberta Smith, the able 
auctioneer, was doing splendidly. After the 
sale the chairman of the proceedings, Doris 
Akerly called upon the delightful and talented 
soprano, Mary Lou Barry to favor us with a 
selection. Miss Barry was supported by the 
clever pianist, Peggy Lane. 

The gathering quickly came to an end as 
Fire Chief Phillip Brewster tore out of the fire 
station in his new jet-powered engine in the 
direction of North Randolph. Fireman Tom 
Schneider and John W ooldridge were sitting 
on the back desperately grasping two red 
buckets of sand. Without delay, I jumped on 
my motor bike and followed them. The ap- 
paratus came to a halt in front of Fred Teed's 
Chicken Emporium, and the energetic men in 
red dashed in. It seemed that Fred had develop- 
ed a new kind of hen that didn't lay eggs. The 
prize bird has disappeared and its owner was 
frantic. A possee of neighboring farmers had 
been, enlisted including Frank McDermott. 
Bobby Benson and Bob Bailey. The chase was 
on as the Game Warden Mildred Champa 
supervised. As I was about to leave this place 
of confusion I saw a lunch wagon pull up and 
I was quite surprised to see Joe Abers and 
Mary Pace, garbed in sparkling white coats 
prepared to serve the hunters steaming black 
coffee. I was tempted to indulge, but recalled 
that famous and timely quotation of those two 
famous philosophers, "Bob and Ray" which 
states "no time for that, Billy!" This made up 
my mind! 

Driving along on my faithful scooter I noticed 
an attractive stand which advertised flower 
bargains. On entering I was pleased to see 
Marjorie Gunther, the florist, engaging in her 
spring flower display. Miss Gunther had wisely 
employed Joanne Bryant and Bemadette Gillis 
to model the decorative corsages. Barbara 
Kilcoyne had just bought three dozen carna- 
tions with which to illustrate her weekly lec- 
tures on Personality. Before departing from 
this fragrant establishment I interviewed Jane 



Gaynor, Phyllis Snow and Marjorie Sorrentino 
who were assisting Miss Gunther in arranging 
the displays. 

At this time I deemed it auspicious to return 
a few books to the library. Since they were 
several months overdue I hastened with spec- 
tacular speed. The charming librarians were 
Gladys Toczko, Marie Gillis and Nancy Farrell. 
They had entirely remodeled the premises and I 
discussed their marvelous improvements with 
enthusiasm. On my exit from the building, I 
noticed three members of the Stetson faculty 
approaching the office of Doctor Hugh Lynch. 
Edna Ebbs, Ann Pemberton, Winton Washing- 
ton and Dick Hibbett who with their respec- 



tive heads of the Stetson High School Athletic 
Program, were visiting Doctor Lynch to obtain 
a goodly supply of vitamin pills for their 
powerful teams. 

The sun is slowly sinking in the West. The 
street is deserted now as the happy citizens 
of " Randolph are drifting homeward. My 
survey is complete. My job is done. These 
people of whom I write have not found spec- 
tacular success but they have found fulfillment 
They have obtained the treasure of content- 
ment. What more can they achieve? 

Sincerely, 

Rosemary Kathleen Woodman

/ IHidwinter J^ea 

as published in the 
National High School Anthology of Poetry 



She used to lift her skirts of ruffled foam 
And chase the laughing children up this shore, 
Slap their bare legs, then turn and slither back 
To catch her breath and rise to run once more. 

At night she gathered stars into her arms, 
Sprinkled them where her hair and heaven meet, 
Drawing young lovers with her mystic charms, 
Reaching with childish glee to kiss their feet. 

Time was when she was young and fiercely strong, 
Swinging her sleek, green mane in haughty pride, 
Praising herself in loud, exultant song, 
Sweeping the sands with her triumphant glide. 

Now, in the barren winter at this place, 
I see her bitter, weak, and all alone, 
Drawing grav lines across her tear-stained face, 
Breaking the silence with her lonely moan.

Now folks, we would like, to show you just how we spend those many hours of leisure time. 
Just as our classes, our activities are planned s o that we learn something even as we play. We 
know that you realize the value of these programs for they teach us all the important art of 
getting along with- each other in victory or defeat. They also give us an opportunity to give 
vent to that youthful enthusiasm and energy whi ch might otherwise lay stagnant. Arn't ive lucky 
to have such thoughtful guardians?

In conclusion dear parents, we now present the staff which compiled this book. 
They have had but one goal in mind and that was to bring you pleasure. It is true 
that there were many days of uncertainties and disappointments, but then reward is 
eminent. For in this world of chaos, if they have succeeded in causing you to forget 
your troubles for one brief moment, wherein perhaps you smiled, then it was ivell 
worth their humble efforts.
